Bukkake

Bukkake is a group sex practice that features a male or female subject being ejaculated on by multiple men. Theories as to the historical origins of bukkake vary, but one is that bukkake was started by Japanese adult video companies during the 1970s and 1980s.

Etymology

Bukkake is the noun form of the Japanese verb bukkakeru or bucchigiri . Kakeru in this context means to shower or pour. The word bukkake is often used in Japanese to describe pouring out water (or other liquids) with sufficient momentum to cause splashing or spilling. Indeed, bukkake is used in Japan to describe a type of dish where the toppings are poured on top of noodles, as in bukkake-udon and bukkake-soba.

It can be assumed that a significant factor in the development of bukkake as a pornographic art form was the mandatory censorship of genitalia in Japan. Since the directors could not show penetration they sought other ways to depict sex acts without violating Japanese law. Semen was not required to be censored, thus creating a loophole for harder sex scenes.

Sociology

Some feminists have described bukkake as a fetish culture beyond sex. Others claim that bukkake is symbolic group rape, and its primary purpose is the humiliation, degradation and objectification of women.

It has also been called a "ritualized humiliation of someone who evokes resentment" and an expression of male loss of control due to the reality of increasing female social influence in society. Still others view it as a laudable example of liberation and the growth of sexual rights both in the East and in the West. Some women have gone public regarding their sexual enjoyment of bukkake; one prominent example is Catherine Millet.
